The color palette I used is not my usual style at all but, I ended up loving the soft blues, teals and green - for me that is a big switch...I love my colors bold!
I started with clear embossing the Hero Arts Numbers background onto some water color paper. I added a layer of water colors in blue, green and teal to the card. After it dried, I swiped a damp baby wipe over the face to bring out the numbers a bit more. My next layer is vellum, since I was placing white die cut elements I needed that background to fade just a bit. I did cut the vellum layer slightly smaller than the water color panel on the sides so their full color would show a little bit. My next layers are white die cuts, Bold Blooms and Merry & Bright both Ellen's Essentials. I added three clear sequins with dots of eucalyptus stickles in the middles. Then more layers, white to frame it all and then a blue card base.
